And it is not until something which requires them to do instead of just "say" happens, they are happy to just signal to others that privacy is important. Even then, a subgroup won't act and just continue to signal.
@polychrome @fuuko And worse, companies have realized this. How many personal data leaks from banks and financial institutions have we had recently world wide? Yet, people just sit and continue to preach how privacy is important to them, but do nothing. The social norm requires them to value privacy, so they have to signal it this way, but deep down it's an empty claim.
@sysdharma @fuuko I've gone the reverse route thanks to Glass. People were blocking glass wearers from entering places and even acting violent in the street, in some cases smashing their devices for "filming them".
This is not the response of people who do not care for their privacy. More likely, they want to feel like they are in control of when they expose themselves and get very agitated when they feel the control is out of their hands.
